Villa De Paz Idol

For the past three years our ward has done a lip sinking contest called Villa De Paz Idol, last year was the first year that our boys participated in this. And they couldn't wait for it to come this year. I have to say that it is a really fun night, we have 3 people who play Paula, Randy and Simon, we of course have a Ryan Seacrest as well. Everything is done in good fun and everyone has a great time. This year the boys performed "I'm A Goofy Goober" from the SpongeBob Square pants movie. Jaden was the lead singer while Ty jammed out on guitar, it was so fun to watch and once I figure out how to convert the video I'll post it on line. Maybe next year Dave and I will get up the courage to also perform, not likely but hey you never know!


I can't believe that Cole is now 7 1/2 months old! He has just started crawling, which I love but then again I don't. I miss being able to put him down and know that when I come back he'll be in the same spot. But then again it's so fun to watch him learn to do new things, Jaden and Ty didn't crawl this early so I was hoping I had more time to baby proof the house. He has also gotten in his two bottom teeth and he has started pulling himself up on what ever he can find. Jaden and Ty get so worried when they find him standing up next to something, they hate it when he falls down. They're so worried that he's going to get hurt, which every once in awhile he does fall and bonk his head, but hey that's part of the learning process. He gets over it pretty quickly and is back pulling himself up.
He is such a happy kid all the time, at night I hate putting him to bed because he's so full of smiles. I just want to sit and play with him.

Science Museum

This summer is seems to be flying by and I can't seem to catch up. Between swim team practice, summer movie fun passes and playing with friends we seem to always be busy.
This week I was able to take the boys to the AZ Science Museum, they had some really fun exhibits there. The newest one is all made out of Lego's and it's about castles and mid evil times. The boys got to pretend to joust, and build there own walls around castles to protect them. They had these life size statues of knights and a dragon, completely made out of Lego's. I can't imagine how long it took to put them together. It was amazing the detail that went into building these statues and castles.

In another area it was all about cause and effect and how things work. The boys got to lay on a bed of nails, and were amazed that it didn't hurt. There were some many fun experiments about gravity and cause and effect, it kept the kids entertained for over an hour. I even got in on a couple rounds of tug of war, as did Jaden.

I think we spent over 3 hours there just wondering around and having fun, I actually can't wait to go back and play some more.
